Spears Sisters Endorse Hillary

Posted by Raj on March 13, 2008

In an announcement that could shake up the Democratic Presidential nomination race, the Spears sisters, Britney and Jamie Lynn, formally endorsed Hillary Clinton today at a press conference. As the Democratic Primaries have heated up over the last few weeks, there had been much apprehension from both Clinton and Obama about whose camp the Spears sisters would end up in. Needless to say, the Clinton camp was elated after hearing the news, and many think this is the type of high profile endorsement that could push Clinton over the top and secure her the nomination.

A joint statement given by a spokesperson on behalf of the sisters said, “We’re sorry that we had to wait until this late in the game to announce our endorsement, but between the hectic nature of a public teenage pregnancy and Britney checking in and then fleeing the psychiatric ward, it’s been hard for us to meet and focus on the election. We know the American people look to us for guidance in times like this and don’t take our responsibility lightly.”

Samuel L. Jackson Reads Movie Script He Doesn’t Like

Posted by Raj on March 5, 2008

Samuel L. Jackson sent shockwaves through Hollywood yesterday, announcing that he was turning down a movie role after reading a script he didn’t like. The movie, Scorpions on a Ship, is believed to be the first role Jackson has turned down since he declined to play a Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard in a high school play about civil rights. In that case, however, his parents’ refusal to sign the permission form was the reason Jackson did not participate, not his hesitancy about the role. But, after starring in 63 straight films he had been offered, even Jackson drew the line at Scorpions on Ship, a period piece about a 19th Century man on slave-ship, who has to protect himself and his family when killer scorpions are intentionally let loose on the ship by a rival plantation owner.

Church of Scientology Expels Tom Cruise

Posted by Raj on January 22, 2008

The Church of Scientology held a press conference yesterday to formally cut ties with Tom Cruise. The prepared statement read in part, “After much careful deliberation, we have decided that it is best for all parties concerned that Tom no longer be affiliated with the Church. This is not a decision we took lightly, but in light of many factors, including his recent lackluster box office performance and the ‘ickiness’ of his relationship with Katie Holmes, we thought this was the most prudent action. That, and frankly, he’s a little out there even for us, and that’s saying a lot.”

Jolie Adopts Entire Nation of Malawi

Posted by Raj on January 5, 2008

The citizens of Malawi were rejoicing yesterday as Angelina Jolie announced that she and Brad Pitt would adopt all of the one million plus orphaned children in the tiny African nation. It had been expected for sometime that Jolie would return to the international limelight with some humanitarian gesture but the magnitude of this announcement caught everyone off guard, including her most ardent fans. “Wow. Malawi huh? Not sure exactly where that is but that’s huge.”, said Jenny Carouthers-Smith of Sacramento, a twenty-something woman who runs a Jolie fan-site. “I was expecting maybe another adoption of a cute Asian kid or a maybe another cause like PETA that she was going to become a spokesperson for, but this is major.”
